Formerly a Catholic convent with a neo-Gothic chapel, CHIJMES is now known as a go-to destination for fab restaurants, bars and cafes.
Adding to its see-and-be-seen-at factor? The second instalment of the Picnic & Movie Under The Stars series, held on July 8, 2017, from 4 to 10 p.m. Imagine this: picnicking on a green lawn and watching the fun flick, Marley & Me, under the open sky with your fourlegged loved ones.
Save yourself some hassle: Preorder a picnic basket of goodies (subject to limited availability) from CHIJMES. Prepared by Moa Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill, it contains a meal for two (take an exclusive peek at the basket of goodies here!), a mat, disposable cutleries and a goodie bag for you and your pet worth more than $100!
(Picnic baskets are priced at $88 nett, with an early bird discount price of $80 valid till 2 July. To preorder the baskets and for more details, please call 6332 6273 or 6332 6279, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Bonus for our readers: quote “The Finder” when ordering to receive the early bird discount until 8 July!)
At this outdoor event, you are allowed, in fact, encouraged to bring your pets along.
Don’t have any animals of your own? Well, you can fix that with a pet-adoption drive, featuring participating animal shelters Cats Welfare Society, Noah’s Ark, and Purely Adoptions.
Other pre-movie activities abound: a dog-obedience class taught by Patrick Wong, one of Singapore’s leading dog trainers, as well as a fair featuring stalls selling pet food and merchandise.
Registration for the picnic starts at 7 p.m. So, drop by early to and pick a good spot on the lawn to relax with your paw pal before the film starts rolling.
As much as we love taking our cute companions out with us to public places, there are some things to note when doing so. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
– Bring poop bags. As the owner, you have to clean up after they “go”.
– Keep your dog on a leash or in a carrier (that goes for cats and guinea pigs, too!), because you don’t want your pet to wander off or get overly agitated.
– Bring some of their favourite toys so they can have fun by themselves, even while you do your thing (like watch that film!)
8 July 2017, 4-10pm (movie registration begins at 7pm)
